After the dynamic discussion during the session of ACT Affinity Groups, the ACT Institute will continue offering a platform to continue moving the conversation forward with Affinity Group Session for ACT Practitioners to debrief around the historical impacts of white supremacy, systemic racism & police brutality.
Affinity groups are spaces for people of similar racial or ethnic backgrounds to gather and process together around issues which impact our communities. The ACT Institute would like to role model the facilitation of affinity groups, with the hope that it will support African, Afro-American, Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Latinx Practitioners, POC (People of Color) Practitioners and White Ally Practitioners. This may be something that could eventually be implemented within agencies.
The calls will take place via zoom links, listed below (note: each call has a separate link to join.)
We encourage you to join and share your experiences and how we can come together to work toward changing the narrative!
The Zoom information will be emailed to ACT Providers.
We encourage participants to turn on their camera when joining!
